Bhikharam Chandmal has opened a new outlet at Salt Lake near the City Centre. They are selling sweets and salted snacks as well as North Indian dinner on self-service basis. They have the classic Bikaneri bhujia, chana-chur, namkeens and what not – almost everything you can expect from a North Indian, specially Rajasthani sweet shop.

I love their Kesaria Rabri, Jodhpuri mirch pakoda, mini gulab jamun, almond laddoo with chocolate sauce on top – well the list goes on and on. They even have a hot dishes counter near the front-gate. However I do wish they also carried the Kesaria ice-cream as they do in the Kankurgachi outlet.

In my humble opinion, Bhikharam’s bhujia snacks are better and fresher compared to Haldiram’s and you are well advised to try them the next time you are shopping at the City Centre.

We all love hanging out and eating at a food park. The main attraction is the wide variety of fare served from the different counters. A big group of guys and gals with diverse taste can all be happy and satisfied eating at a food park. Recently I visited a new food park and hang out at Infinity Benchmark in Salt Lake, Sector V – Bytes.

Located nicely, bang opposite the RDB Boulevard, at the ground floor, it has opened very recently and therefore some of the stalls were not even open. But lots of choices were still available. The pasta and pizza stall, the south Indian fare, chats of Kolkata were all there. There is a special counter for shakes and drinks (no hard drinks naturally).

I must specially mention the Biryani and Rolls counter which are the biggest pull for a Calcuttan. Don’t we just love the rolls and mutton biryani.

If you hurry, you can still catch the introductory 20% discount on all items. Check out the place – you should enjoy there.
